Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
Colour: Bright pale gold.
Nose: Intense spiced pear with citrus and subtle white florals.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Great Dividing Range in the Grampians region of Victoria, the Mount Langi Ghiran (Aboriginal for home of the yellow-tailed black cockatoo) vineyard is one of the most isolated and unique sites in Australian viticulture. The vineyard, with its towering granite cliffs and loamy red soils, encapsulates an extraordinary sense of place. Mount Langi Ghiran , or Langi, as it is fondly referred to by the staff, was originally planted in 1870. It has become the home of one of Australia’s finest cool climate wines, the Langi Shiraz. Langi was first planted with Shiraz in 1870, but was later replanted by the Fratin brothers in 1963.
The exceptionally high quality of the Fratin’s fruit quickly drew a strong following and in 1978, the brothers appointed Trevor Mast as consultant winemaker. Inspired by the potential of the vineyard and keen to develop it further, Trevor and Sandra Mast purchased the property in 1987. In late 2002 the property was sold to the Rathbone family. Trevor stayed on as head winemaker, with Dan Buckle joining the team. When Dan took over the reins as Chief Winemaker, Kate Petering joined the team. Dan presided over the continuing evolution of winemaking at Langi, with excellent results over trying vintages. Kate became Chief Winemaker in 2012 and continued the tradition of exceptional winemaking. Now with Ben Haines at the helm from 2014, Langi looks to continue evolving and respect the legacy of Trevor Mast’s pioneering spirit.
